Zoltán Kodály-Sonata for solo cello, Op. 8

Zoltán Kodály was a Hungarian composer, ethnomusicologist, pedagogue, linguist, and philosopher. He is well known internationally as the creator of the Kodály Method. His philosophy of education served as inspiration for the method, which was then developed over a number of years by his associates. Studies have shown that the Kodály method improves intonation, rhythm skills, music literacy, and the ability to sing in increasingly complex parts.  Outside music, it has been shown to improve perceptual functioning, concept formation, motor skills, and performance in other academic areas such as reading and math. In 2016, the method was inscribed as a UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage.
